North Highland Archive - Miscellaneous P List

Miscellaneous collections by order of deposit (correct and checked as at December 1999). As a complete record of private deposits, it duplicates some of the collections noted in the Master Guide, but mostly denotes single items or files except where indicated. Some of the larger deposits have separate lists. These should soon be available also, and all are available in the archive itself.

As this list is rather long and sorted numerically, we recommend you use the "find" facility on your browser.
